A GROUP of residents of Avenel banned together for the purpose of 
organizing a fire company. The group held its first meeting at the 
homie of Mr. J. B. Edgar, July 1, 1912, to appoint Fire Commissioner^ 
for the district. The following were appointed to serve for the ensuing 
year: Dr. A. F. Mount, J. B. Edgar, E. A. Moran, H. Posner and J. 
Praver. 

On February 18, 1913, a fire company was organized. A chailer 
under the nam'e of the Avenel Chemical Company No. 1 was obtained. 
July 12. 1913, the name was legally changed to the Avenel Fire Com- 
pany No. 1. 



% The charter members are as follows: Messrs. Joseph Bizdery, Fred 

Y Ciegotura, Emil C. Earhart, Edward L. Fagan, Andi-ew Fuss, Rudolph 
^ Hrinyak, Edwai-d A. Moran, Edwin J. Perry, Joseph Praver, Henry 

Y Striker, Joseph Sazabo, and William VanSlyke. 

^ A seventy gallon chemical hand drawn apparatus was purchased, 

J also a carboy of acid and a bari-el of soda used for fire equipment. This 

K apparatus was housed in a shed owned by Joseph Praver. The follow- 

J ing year the firemen built a small building on a lot leased by a fireman, 

K Frank Hacker, for five years. As years passed with monies received 

J from various activities and donations from public-spirited citizens, a 

^ piece of property was purchased on Hyatt street, corner of Ziegler ave- 

J nue, upon which a hollow brick fire house was built in 1919. 

\ In 1921 monies were raised through an appropriation voted by the 

f people in the fire district, which resulted in the purchase of a motor 

J driven apparatus, a two hundred and fifty gallon pumper. The same 

1^ year fire hydrants were installed on Avenel street, and up to the pres- 

^ ent time lire hydrants are installed throughout the district. 



% A new Highway was con.structed by the State Highway Commis- 

•V sion, called the "Superhighway," and part of the fire house property was 

% taken by the Commission, resulting in the purchase of a new piece of 

a property by the Fire Commissioners to house the fire apparatus. Oui- 

\b present fire house, was built in the year 1929, on the corner of Avenel 

a street and the Superhighway. 

J In 1936 a five hundired gallon apparatus was purchased. Also an 

K installation of a Fire Alarm System in the district, with eight fire alarm |. 

t; boxes. R 

I i 

\ The present roster consists of forty-five active firemen. J
